    It's a standard (metric) nut and bolt assembly, you have to go from under the wheel well towards the strut sheet metal plate and assemble.

    No, Cusco only makes them with their standard blue finish, which is their trademark look.

    Is it fairly easy to reach with the car up on jack stands? Wheel off and fender liner off I'm assuming?

    Yes yes, but you might need to remove your damper shocks, I did it myself when lowering my car every spring/summer season. No need to remove fender liner.

    not sure if this can help, but Cusco USA recently made this poster showcasing the benefits of using a Strut tower brace, also keep in mind best results according to this document are achieved when installing a brace before installing the dampers (shocks) to keep the entire frame levelled.
